a good thing!
This reseller agreement (this “Agreement”) sets forth the legally binding terms for the resale of Products and/or Professional Services (each as defined herein). This Agreement is by and between Ping Identity Corporation (“Ping Identity”) and the reseller entity on whose behalf you are executing this Agreement (“Reseller”). You represent that you have the authority to bind Reseller to the terms of this Agreement. By agreeing to the terms of this Agreement or by reselling any Products and/or Professional Services, Reseller expressly agrees to and consents to be bound by all of the terms of this Agreement. If Reseller does not agree to any of the terms of this Agreement, Reseller is prohibited from reselling any Products or Professional Services. The effective date of this Agreement is the date set forth on an Order Form that references these terms or, if earlier, the date on which Reseller resells any Products or Professional Services (the “Effective Date”).
1.1 Appointment. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, Ping Identity hereby appoints Reseller and Reseller accepts the appointment as Ping Identity’s non-exclusive reseller of the Products and Professional Services as set forth on an executed Order Form (as defined herein). Reseller does not have the right to distribute any other Ping Identity products or services not set forth in an Order Form, and except as set forth below in this Section 1, does not have the right to appoint or authorize any third party to act as a dealer, agent, or reseller for the distribution of Products or Professional Services without Ping Identity’s prior written consent.
1.2 Territory. As used in this Agreement the term “Territory” means the country or jurisdiction set forth on an executed Order Form as the location of the Customer. Reseller shall not resell the Products or Professional Services outside the Territory. Nothing in this Agreement shall prohibit or otherwise restrict Ping Identity from selling or licensing Products or Professional Services, directly or indirectly, to Customers within or outside the Territory.
1.3 Distributors. Reseller may sub-grant its rights of resale hereunder to a third-party sub-reseller (a “Distributor”), whereby Reseller will resell the applicable subscriptions to the Products or the Professional Services that have been purchased from Ping Identity in the applicable Order Form to the Distributor, who will resell such subscriptions or services to the Customer specified in the applicable Order Form. In such event, Reseller represents and warrants that it will require that the Distributor resell the Products and Professional Services to the Customer subject to all terms, conditions and restrictions with respect to the Products and Professional Services set forth on the applicable Order and in this Agreement. Reseller will be liable to Ping Identity for all actions and omissions of the Distributor with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement as if such actions or omissions were those of Reseller hereunder.
2. General Provisions for Purchase and/or Licensing of Products.
2.2 Reseller shall notify Ping Identity of (i) any breach by any Customer of any terms contained in the Ping Identity EULA of which Reseller becomes aware, and (ii) any infringement or alleged infringement of the patents, copyrights, trade secrets, trademarks or other proprietary rights of Ping Identity or its Products of which Reseller becomes aware. Reseller shall provide all assistance as reasonably required by Ping Identity to assist in the enforcement of any and all terms contained in the Ping Identity EULA including, but not limited to, any assistance needed with respect to any claims of infringement and/or violation of any of Ping Identity’s proprietary rights related to the Products.
2.3 Reseller’s purchase price for the Products and Professional Services shall be set forth on the applicable Order Form. Reseller shall have sole discretion with respect to its resale price to Customer.
2.4 Reseller shall order Products or Professional Services hereunder for Customer by executing orders forms with Ping Identity (“Orders Forms”). If Professional Services are purchased for resale, a statement of work, description of services, or similar document (an “SOW”) may be attached to the Order Form. In the event that Reseller delivers a purchase order to Ping Identity in connection with an Order Form, then notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in such purchase order, any terms or conditions contained on or referenced in the purchase order are specifically rejected by Ping Identity and shall have no force or effect.
2.5 Ping Identity hereby grants Reseller a personal, non-exclusive, non-transferable right to distribute the Products solely under the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the Ping Identity EULA as set forth in Section 2.1. Reseller shall not be permitted to distribute any Products beyond the maximum entitlements (for example, user quantities), and any other restrictions, as set forth in the applicable Order Form. Reseller is obligated to obtain Customer’s agreement to any and all restrictions on use of the Products as agreed to in advance by Ping Identity and Reseller in the applicable Order Form. Reseller warrants that prior to executing an Order Form, Reseller will obtain Customer’s acceptance of (a) any entitlement restrictions contained in an Order Form (such as user types or quantities), (b) any additional terms required to be provided to Customer pursuant to an Order Form, (c) any applicable SOW, and (d) the Ping Identity EULA.
2.6 Support Services may be included in the subscription to the Products, as indicated on the applicable Order Form, and if not, may be purchased separately from Ping Identity. Support Services for Customers shall be provided solely in accordance with Ping Identity’s applicable support policy purchased by Customer. Support Services are required for the Customers to be eligible to receive updates, upgrades, enhancements, fixes, and new versions of the Software and telephone support. Unless otherwise agreed to by the Reseller and Ping Identity in writing, Ping Identity shall provide all Support Services directly to Customers. Ping Identity shall not be responsible to Customers for any support and maintenance services for non-Ping Identity products sold by Reseller.
2.7 Reseller shall pay all fees specified in Order Forms (“Fees”). Unless otherwise agreed to in an Order Form, Fees will be invoiced to Reseller upon execution of an Order Form, and payment of Fees shall be made by Reseller within thirty (30) days of receipt of Ping Identity’s invoice. Except as otherwise expressly specified herein or in an Order Form, Order Forms and related payment obligations are non-cancelable, and fees paid are non-refundable. Reseller’s payments to Ping Identity shall be made without deduction for taxes, imposts, customs, levies or other withholding (“Tax”) or shall be grossed‑up to provide Ping Identity the same amount after such Tax as it would have received without the imposition of such Tax, together with tax receipts or similar evidence of payment by Reseller. Reseller is responsible for collecting and remitting any and all Value-Added Tax (VAT) or other taxes due from the Customer. Any overdue payments shall bear interest payable to Ping Identity at the rate of one and a half percent (1.5%) per month, compounded monthly, or if such rate violates applicable law, then the maximum amount of interest chargeable under applicable law. Unless otherwise stated, all Fees in Order Forms are exclusive of Taxes. Payment obligations are not contingent upon Reseller’s receipt of any payments from Customer.
2.8 In addition to the fees set forth in the applicable Order Form, Ping Identity’s multi-factor authentication products and capabilities allow a Customer to utilize integrated third-party provider(s) to enable SMS and voice call authentication features for multi-factor authentication. Customers are not required to utilize this functionality, but in the event that a Customer elects to utilize any SMS or voice call features in Ping Identity’s multi-factor authentication products, Reseller will be responsible for all charges incurred by Ping Identity for Customer’s use, and Ping Identity will bill Reseller in arrears and all fees are due and payable as set forth in Section 2.7 above. Reseller is solely responsible for determining with Customer whether Customer will reimburse Reseller for such charges.
2.9 All Software shall be deemed to be accepted upon delivery by electronic download. Registration for the Service is accomplished through Ping Identity’s website. Reseller shall be responsible, at its own expense, for obtaining all necessary import permits and certificates (or any other documentation required by the government, with the exception that Ping Identity shall procure U.S. export licenses with Reseller’s cooperation, if applicable) and for the payment of any and all taxes and duties imposed on the delivery of the Products as set forth in the Order Form.
2.10 All right, title and interest to all Products, any related Documentation, and any Demo Products, including any enhancements, modifications or derivatives thereof, including any software development performed by Ping Identity, supplied to Reseller remains with Ping Identity (or, if applicable, Ping Identity’s third party licensor), including all intellectual property rights embodied in the foregoing, and shall not pass to Reseller or any Customer, or other third party.
3. Demo Products; Distribution Rights and Requirements.
3.1 In the event that Ping Identity provides Reseller with license keys and access to any Software, then subject to the terms of this Agreement, Ping Identity grants Reseller a personal, non‑exclusive, non‑transferable, non-sublicenseable license to use the Software solely for training and demonstration purposes (“Demo Software”), solely on and in connection with Reseller’s computers in non-production environment(s). Ping Identity shall have no obligation to provide Support Services for Demo Software. Reseller shall ensure that Demo Software does not become part of Reseller’s inventory. Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Ping Identity may also agree to provide Reseller with a no-charge subscription to the Service, in which case it may be utilized solely for demonstration and training purposes only during the term of this Agreement (“Demo Service” and together with the Demo Software, the “Demo Products”). Ping Identity may terminate any of the foregoing licenses or subscriptions to the Demo Products at any time upon written notice, or temporarily suspend access to the Demo Service if deemed necessary in Ping Identity’s reasonable discretion. Certain items of software included with the Demo Products are subject to the “open source” or “free software” licenses, which may be owned by third parties. Nothing in this document limits Reseller’s rights or obligations under the terms and conditions of any applicable end user license for the such open source software. Reseller shall comply with all applicable laws, including without limitation export control laws, in its use of the Demo Products.
3.2 Reseller shall not utilize any rights to the Demo Products provided to Reseller hereunder except as permitted by Section 3.1, and Reseller represents and warrants that it will not utilize the Demo Products to process any personally identifiable information of actual persons, and will only operate the Demo Products in a non-production environment. Except as expressly set forth herein, Reseller will not, and will not allow any third party to: (i) license, sublicense, operate as a service bureau or managed service, or otherwise commercially exploit or make the Products or Demo Products available to any third party, other than to Customers as set forth herein or as otherwise contemplated by this Agreement; (ii) use the Products or Demo Products for Reseller’s own business use unless pursuant to a separate executed agreement between Ping Identity and Reseller; (iii) modify, copy, adapt, alter, translate or create derivative works of the Products or Demo Products; (iv) frame or mirror any content forming part of the Service or Demo Service, other than on Customer’s own intranets or otherwise for a Customer’s own internal business purposes; (v) reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the Products or Demo Products (or otherwise attempt to derive the source code for the Products or Demo Products or underlying ideas or algorithms of the Products or Demo Products); (vi) take any action that would cause the Products or Demo Products (or any license or registration keys) to be placed in the public domain; (vii) remove, alter, or obscure any proprietary notices of Ping Identity, its licensors or supplier included in the Products or Demo Products; (viii) send spam or otherwise duplicative or unsolicited messages in violation of applicable laws through the Service or Demo Service; (ix) send or store infringing, obscene, threatening, libelous, or otherwise unlawful or tortious material, including material that is harmful to children or violates third party privacy rights; (x) send or store any malicious code through or in the Service or Demo Service; (xi) interfere with or disrupt the integrity or performance of the Service or Demo Service or the data contained therein, including conducting any load or penetration testing on the Service or Demo Service; (xii) access the Products or Demo Products in order to (A) build a competitive product or service, or (B) copy any ideas, features, functions or graphics of the Products or Demo Products; (xiii) attempt to gain unauthorized access to the Service or Demo Service or its related systems or networks; or (xiv) publish or disclose to any third party any opinions relating to, or test results, benchmarking or comparative study involving any Product or Demo Product without the prior written consent of Ping Identity. In addition, except as expressly permitted hereunder with respect to Customer, Reseller shall keep the Products and Demo Products strictly confidential and shall not provide them or otherwise make them or any part thereof available to any third party.
3.3 Subject to the terms of the Agreement, Ping Identity will defend at its own expense any action against Reseller brought by a third party alleging that the Products or Demo Products, in each case, as delivered, infringe any patents issued as of the Effective Date or any copyrights or misappropriate any trade secrets, in each case, controlled by such third party in the U.S., Canada, the EU or any other jurisdiction set forth in an applicable Order, and Ping Identity will indemnify Reseller against those costs and damages finally awarded against Reseller in any such action that are specifically attributable to such claim or those costs and damages agreed to in a monetary settlement of such action. The foregoing obligations are conditioned on Reseller: (i) notifying Ping Identity promptly in writing of such claim or allegation, setting forth in reasonable detail the facts and circumstances surrounding the claim; (ii) giving Ping Identity sole control of the defense thereof and any related settlement negotiations, including not making any admission of liability or take any other action that limits the ability of Ping Identity to defend the claim; and (iii) cooperating and, at Ping Identity’s request and expense, assisting in such defense. If the Products or Demo Products become, or in Ping Identity’s sole opinion are likely to become, the subject of an infringement claim, Ping Identity may, at its option and expense, either: (a) procure for Reseller the right to continue to distribute the Products hereunder; (b) replace or modify the Products or Demo Products so that they become non-infringing; or (c) terminate this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Ping Identity will have no obligation under this Section 3.3 or otherwise with respect to any infringement claim based upon: (w) any use or distribution of the Products or Demo Products not in accordance with this Agreement or the Ping Identity EULA; (x) any use or distribution of the Products or Demo Products in combination with products, equipment, software, or data not supplied or approved in writing by Ping Identity if such infringement would have been avoided but for the combination with other products, equipment, software or data; (y) any use of a prior release of the Software or Demo Software after a more current release has been made available to Reseller; or (z) any modification of the Products or Demo Products by any person other than Ping Identity. This Section 5.4 states Ping Identity’s entire liability and Reseller’s exclusive remedy for any claims of infringement.
3.4 Reseller shall indemnify, defend and hold Ping Identity harmless from and against any claim, suit, or proceeding brought against Ping Identity based on (i) any acts or omissions on the part of Reseller in marketing or distributing the Products; (ii) any representations, warranties, guarantees, or other written or oral statements made by or on behalf of Reseller relating to the Products other than as authorized by Ping Identity in writing or made in Documentation, (iii) any breach by Reseller of Section 2.5. The foregoing obligations are conditioned on Ping Identity: (a) notifying Reseller promptly in writing of such claim or allegation, setting forth in reasonable detail the facts and circumstances surrounding the claim; (b) giving Reseller sole control of the defense thereof and any related settlement negotiations, including not making any admission of liability or take any other action that limits the ability of Reseller to defend the claim; and (c) cooperating and, at Reseller’s request and expense, assisting in such defense.
3.5 Reseller and Ping Identity agree to notify each other promptly in writing regarding possible infringement, unauthorized use or misappropriation of each other’s respective patents, trade secrets, trade names, trademarks and copyrights and agree to cooperate in each other’s actions, if any, with respect to the alleged infringement, unauthorized use or misappropriation of such intellectual property rights.
4.1 Software. Ping Identity warrants that for a period of ninety (90) days after applicable license keys have been made available to Reseller (the “Warranty Period”), the Software provided hereunder, when used as permitted under the Ping Identity EULA and in accordance with the instructions in the Documentation, will substantially conform to the specifications set forth in the Documentation. Ping Identity does not warrant that use of the Software will be error-free or uninterrupted. Reseller must notify Ping Identity in writing within the Warranty Period of any substantial non-conformity of the Software with the Documentation. Ping Identity’s sole obligation and Reseller’s exclusive remedy under this warranty is, at Ping Identity’s option, either (i) to use commercially reasonable efforts to correct such reproducible non-conformity in a manner determined by Ping Identity, (ii) to replace the Software containing the reproducible non-conformity, or (iii) refund the prepaid, unused license fees received by Ping Identity for the non-conforming Software, to be utilized for the satisfaction of similar warranty obligations of Ping Identity to Customer under the Ping Identity EULA.
4.2 Services. Supplier warrants that it will provide the Services in a manner consistent with general industry standards reasonably applicable to the provision thereof; and that the functionality of the Services will not be materially decreased during a subscription term. Ping Identity’s sole obligation and Reseller’s exclusive remedy under this warranty is, at Ping Identity’s option, either (i) correct the non-conformity with the above warranty, or (iii) refund the prepaid, unused subscription fees received by Ping Identity for the applicable Service, to be utilized for the satisfaction of similar warranty obligations of Ping Identity to Customer under the Ping Identity EULA.
4.3 EXCEPT FOR THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, PING IDENTITY DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS, IMPLIED OR STATUTORY, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE, AND NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS, WITH REGARD TO ANY AND ALL PRODUCTS AND PROFESSIONAL SERVICES WHICH MAY BE SOLD, LICENSED OR PROVIDED PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT.

6. Confidentiality of Documentation and Information. All documents and information supplied to a party (the “Receiving Party”) hereunder that is marked confidential, restricted, or otherwise subject to limited access, or would be reasonably understood to be confidential based on the nature of the information or the circumstances surrounding the disclosure (“Confidential Information”), are proprietary in nature and confidential to the party disclosing such information (the “Disclosing Party”). The Receiving Party agrees to maintain such documents and information in confidence, and not to disclose such information to a third party, or use such documents or information for any purpose other than the fulfillment of the mutual business purposes of the parties under this Agreement. The Receiving Party will disclose Confidential Information only to the employees of the Receiving Party who have a need to know such Confidential Information for purposes of this Agreement and who are under a duty of confidentiality no less restrictive than the Receiving Party’s duty hereunder. To the extent Confidential Information of Ping Identity must be disclosed by Reseller to Customers, Reseller shall include in contracts with its Customers a clause notifying Customers of Ping Identity’s proprietary rights and requiring Customers to comply with the requirements imposed by this provision. The Receiving Party shall be liable to the Disclosing Party for the compliance with the terms of this section by any third parties to whom the Receiving Party provides Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party, as if such third party was the Receiving Party hereunder. This section shall survive any termination of this Agreement, and notwithstanding the above, nothing contained in this section shall restrict Ping Identity from entering into a direct contact or other contractual arrangements with Customers or prospective Customers.
7. Use of Ping Identity’s Trade Name and Trademarks.
7.1 Ping Identity hereby authorizes and requires Reseller to retain on the Products any Ping Identity markings, logos, colors or other insignia which are affixed to the Products.
